The Passport Project

When 14- and 12-year-old sisters embark on a global family journey, they discover that surviving new cultures and customs is even scarier than surviving middle school.

“THANKS FOR RUINING MY LIFE!”

Delaney’s eighth-grade dreams crumble when her parents announce their “global family field trip.” While her younger sister, Riley, is thrilled to ditch middle school for world school, Delaney cringes at trading parties and friends for a passport and 24/7 family time. 

While Riley researches bungee jumping and packing tips, Delaney must decide whether to continue the silent treatment or embrace this adventure.

What about school? Forget acing science and math, the only way to pass this class is to survive:

  • scam artists
  • monster cockroaches
  • deadly stingers
  • projectile vomiting
  • public nudity
  • toilet catastrophes

…and those lessons aren’t in their textbooks. Each passport stamp is a real-life social studies lesson in new religions and new rules—resulting in sooo many awkward family moments. But when an itinerary mistake puts their freedom at risk, Delaney and Riley learn the most valuable lesson of their lives.

Trapped together in their parents’ mid-life crisis, will the sisters survive this global adventure? And will non-stop family time turn them into friends? Or enemies?
